Buying new custom countertops enhances your home’s beauty and performance and increases its long-term value. In Remodeling Magazine’s recent Cost vs. Value Report, kitchen and bathroom remodels — both including upgrading countertops — were two of the top-ranked home improvement projects with 72% of project costs recovered in resale value.
Since you’ll probably own your new countertops for the next dozen years or more, it’s important to know if the product you choose will be in-style and add to your home’s resale value over time. The increasing penetration of granite and natural quartz countertops is projected to accelerate over the next decade, with Corian® / solid surface remaining a popular choice.
For most homeowners, a look and feel that suits your taste and performance that meets your needs are the key considerations in determining which product to buy. The different choices in countertop materials offer a range of features and benefits and each is an excellent option for kitchens and bathrooms alike.
